There is a lot of good stuff happening in the US when it comes to SSI(Self sovreign identity), data control and credentials. Homeland security is funding a big agile project to getting SSI into their ecosystem of being a controller, and having efficient digital systems for their inhabitants.
We have mentioned their work earlier in this article: https://www.din.foundation/are-the-nordics-working-on-the-future-of-standards/

We hope to see this kind of efforts happen in the Nordics soon! We are working towards raising awareness, and also enabling these kinds of projects
